    You might get a different answer depending on the fan. For Sens fans, I would guess Reddden all the way.

    You put the Miller signing up there as a joke, right? That guy's gold. I'd be doing cartwheels if OTT could lock up a guy lilke him!

    I like Ryan Miller. I think he`s really, really good, but I think that contract`s a little rich for a guy who has a career .908 and a 2.69 GAA. 6.25 million is a lot of money. Could they not have reached a 3 year deal for a similar amount to see which way he`s gonna go

    A couple of years ago I would have taken him for $4-5M (at that time I was very, very upset that Gerber got $3.7M, by the way -- have I been proven right?) But now I don't think I would take him for more than $4M. That said, Buffalo needed to mend some fences with the fan base, so they probably didn't mind overpaying a bit.

    Wow. Three defensemen are making this one tough for me. Ringo, Commodore and Finger. I think the hefty price tag plus the term has Ringo in the lead. Have these signings changed the upcoming contract value of defensemen across the NHL?

    I'll admit to being a little nervous about Volchenkov, Phillips and potentially Lee.

    I shouldn't have put Jeff Finger in there. His contract's just too stupid for words. Sad

    Gotta give the nod to Ringo Star.. the most i would have signed him for would be a nickel and a box of Special K, of course specially modified to be "Special W.. For the Cokehead in you!"

    Too far? :king:

    :D The most I would've signed him for is 4.5 million - and even then I would've been nervous!

    Come on, it's gotta be Finger for sure! Who is this guy, and why does he warrant $3.5/per. Ridiculous! That has to have been a mistake. Redden for sure is a close, close, close 2nd. But I had to vote for the Finger signing...he's never proven anything in this league, Redden at one point has...
